Dundee Chambers

Dundee Chambers, on Princes Quay, used to be the offices of the Dundee, Perth & London Shipping Co. Ltd. This company ran ships up and down the coast from Dundee to London with all ports in between as well as other destinations.(DP&L History) Hull seems to have had good connections with the bonnie City of Dundee as this company took over an existing Dundee & Hull Shipping Company in 1857. Dundee is famed for its three J's: Jam, Jute and Journalism. I can see Hull benefiting from the first two but it's clear, if you've ever read the local paper, that the third J never made it.
This building is now part of the Sugar Mill nightclub on the corner of Posterngate
